Thun Tankers – Geos Group Inks Long-term Agreement


Thun tankers have taken delivery of their first Naabsa MAXX On 6th of November , says a report published on their website.

About the design

The Thun Blyth is equipped with NAABSA design (Not Always Afloat But Safely Aground). Thun’s long experience of building resource efficient, high quality vessels has been used in the design process. 

Dwt: 4,250MT , IMO: Type II , LoA: 79.9m, Cubic(98%): 4,800m3, Beam : 15m, Cargo heating : Yes , Coating : Jotun Flexline.

Distinctive features

Extra care was taken into maximizing the vessel’s cargo intake and increase in-port performance with the scope to allow further increased cargo lot sizes going into restricted niche ports.

Resource efficiency, new regulations and environmental care have been key elements in the development of the new vessel. 

Association with Scheepswerf Ferus Smit 

Thun Blyth is built by Scheepswerf Ferus Smit B.V. and was launched in Leer through a much-viewed, online event in the end of August. 

Thun tankers have a longstanding relationship with Scheepswerf Ferus Smit. They have previously built more than thirty-five vessels for the Erik Thun Group. A second NaabsaMAX is ordered from the yard to be delivered in spring 2022.

Agreement with UK company

Thun Blyth is entering into a long term agreement with UK based Geos Group Ltd. Her first destination was the port of Blyth in the UK where she will start operating.
